Whistlebow was formed in the Spring of 2021 by three busy London musicians to combine music from the folk, early and jazz traditions. Using gentle amplification, they adapt well-known songs and melodies – such as The Larks they Sing Melodious and Pastime with Good Company – with unusual rhythms and harmonies: like a snapshot of England’s post-folk musical culture. On Monday 4th. October, we will be performing our first – eponymous – album, just after its official release date. We plan to make many more recordings! You can find out more about them by visiting https://whistlebow.com
Patricia Hammond – Voice
William Summers – Flute, Recorder, Crumhorn
Rupert Gillett – Cello, Guitar, Voice
William is the trio’s local musician, learning music in local schools and singing in the choir of All Saints’ Parish church. He runs regular concerts of early music in historical venues, and met Patricia while both were performing Bach cantatas in central London; Patricia also specialises in popular music from the late 19th and early 20th centuries and has published She Wrote the Songs, which describes the work of female ‘parlour’ composers. She has also adapted and broadcast all genres of music during lockdowns on YouTube in Living Room Requests. Rupert has invented ‘Jazz-Cello Tunes’ – a weekly series of adapted tunes on YouTube – and is active as a recording engineer, producer and arranger.
